Dessert Meets Design: Graphic & Glitz Pt I

Yesterday, I gave you a sneak peek at the inspiration board that inspired the dessert table I designed for a collaboration with  Maddy Hague of Inspired Bride, Amy Hardy of Design 8 Days, and Jonny and Michelle Hoffner of paper antler. Today, I'm back with part one of the Graphic & Glitz post. 

As you already know, this design had a soft pink, shimmery gold, and bold black palette that was accented with chevrons and gorgeous calligraphy. For this dessert buffet, I created custom candy bars, custom popcorn boxes, and chevron favor bags that coordinate with the invitation suite. I also made monogrammed chalkboard cookies, custom star lollipops, and twine-tied favor boxes. 

Every time I design a dessert table, I try to make it really fit with the design of the overall event, so hopefully that's evident in this design, too.

I worked with so many great vendors and creatives for this shoot. Please take a few minutes to swing by their blogs and check out their posts as well.

Thanks so much, ladies! It took a few tries, but I was really happy with how chalk-like the monograms looked so I'm glad you liked them as well.
